Even though it was a very basic room it was adequate size for one night. (I didn't try the food but they made me rate it, so I just gave it 3!).

    A nice human experience. ”

    The friendliness and helpfulness as well of the owner, the manager as of the cleaning ladies and the restaurant personnel. The open space among the rooms. The restaurant and bar.

    It was a happy stay that I extended with a few nights. There's an abundance of helpful personnel. A temporary breakdown of the city water supply system was met with much energy and efficiency. The rooms are situated around a big open space (used as a car parking) which is embellished with palm trees and flowers. Like elsewhere in Addis, you can eat and drink here very well at extremely accessible prices. The weak point of the Atelefugne Hostel may be the location, though it's easy to catch passing minibuses to visit the more vibrant quarters of the city.

    Fulfills your basic needs, enjoy its simplicity!”

    The manager, the helpful night security boy and all the other staff except one who decided watching a world cup game was more important than fetching my spahhetti.

    Atelefugne Hostel and, I cannot fathom why it is named a " hostel " when it is clearly a budget hotel offering great value. This HOTEL has replaced , for me, the Wanza Hotel in Sunshine, Addis which sadly, has been demolished. I arrived at 5:30 am on the first day and the night security was most helpful in allowing me to have somewhere to sleep until my room was ready later in the morning. The owners of the hotel are Ethiopians who have returned from the diaspora and whilst they are not invoved in the day to day management, they have delegated their standards through a friendly, competent manager. The staff are delightful and one or two can communicate in English but I , as a visitor, do not expect or demand that they should speak in English, that's part of the fun. Finally, the hotel offers good value and I hope the owners do not interpret this as "cheap". The key for their continuing success, is knowing and fulfilling the needs of visitors.

    Disappointing.”

    Reasonable price, friendly staff

    Our first stay (arrival in Ethiopia) was okay- our room was ready when we arrived late at night and the bed was comfortable Our second stay (departure from Ethiopia)was disappointing- the room we reserved and paid for well in advance was occupied so we were 'downgraded' to a room which had just been offered to another guest even tho' it was only 11:00 am. The room smelled like backed-up sewer but otherwise was okay although there was no power or water until late that night.

    Friendly owner & staff, tidy & clean, great value”

    staff, cleanliness, value

    We were very pleased to find this quaint hotel. It was inexpensive but the rooms still have character. The rooms are very clean and the staff attentive and efficient. We stayed twice and the owner greeted us and engaged in conversation, as did the manager who was always helpful. Fast wifi was great and they had a popular and decent restaurant as well. Probably the only downside is that it is a $10-20 cab-ride there/back to the airport (15-20mins) which negates the budget cost of the hotel, but in my opinion it was still worth it for a safe, clean room.
